Preassembly yards can yield numerous advantages over performing construction solely at the mine site. Whether building new mine operations or expanding and improving existing mines, Fluor's preassembly solutions help clients lower risk and improve capital efficiency and schedule certainty.
Typical offsite preassembly options for mining clients include:
- Process modules
- Pipe rack modules
- Preassembled conveyor modules
- Preassembled steel structures
Fluor offers a range of preassembly options, including both self-perform preassembly yards and access to independently operated yards worldwide. The optimal preassembly site is identified by weighing criteria such as capacity, labor availability, cost and productivity, proximity to project site, tax status, safety performance, and vessel access, among other factors.
Effective modularization enhances preassembly's benefits. Fluor's extensive modular project experience and comprehensive knowledge of the engineering, procurement, preassembly, construction, and project management process result in preassembly and construction strategies optimized for cost and schedule benefits. With modularization and preassembly options unique to each project, Fluor works closely with clients to develop the best project execution strategy to fit each client's specific needs.
